News: AAA Says Record Number of Americans Will Hit the Road Over July 4 Holiday
The National Auto Body Council (NABC), along with GEICO and Five Star Collision, recently donated two refurbished vehicles to two deserving Macon, Ga., charitable organizations via the NABC Recycled Rides program.
The Museum of Arts and Sciences received a 2015 Toyota Highlander to help share educational programming with Macon-area children. The Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia was presented a 2017 Ford Edge to help deliver service to area residents in need.
The presentation was held at the Five Star Collision Center in Macon. Additional partners in the presentation included 1-800 Charity Cars. In 2022, GEICO has donated more than 50 vehicles to the Recycled Rides program.
“This is the fourth giveaway we’ve held this year — and we’ve got two more scheduled,” said Charel Lock, operations manager for Five Star Collision Centers. “This is something very close to my heart, so we try to give back to our community as often as we can.”
Recycled Rides is a program in which businesses representing all facets of the collision repair industry team up to repair and donate vehicles to individuals and families in need of reliable transportation. Since the inception of the program in 2007, NABC members have donated nearly 3,000 vehicles valued at some $42 million.
